Cooking with Chef Daniele Catalani

Chef Daniele Catalani traveled to the United States from his Tuscan homeland at the age of 20. By the time he was 23, he'd already made his mark on the DC culinary scene, earning a spot as the exclusive chef of Galileo Restaurant and doing battle with clanging robot cooks on the Food Network show Iron Chef America. Though he spends most of his time overseeing the kitchen at Toscana Café, his Washington Post–lauded eatery, he also shares his craft by teaching aspiring cooks how to create Italian-inspired meals and pair them with wine.
